Holly Hunter & Jane Lynch + Jane Krakowski & Penélope Cruz: SAG Awards

Betty White, Sandra Bullock

Betty White and Sandra Bullock appeared together in The Proposal, the summer movie that marked Bullock's resurgence as a box office draw. Later that evening, Bullock won the SAG Award for best actress in a motion picture for The Blind Side, a sleeper hit that confirmed her box office standing in the United States. Her other 2009 release, All About Steve, was a box office disappointment, but that didn't prevent US exhibitors from voting her the top box office attraction in the country, the first woman to hold that position since Julia Roberts in 1999.

It also came out empty handed at the Golden Globes held the previous weekend. The expensive musical has been a major box office disappointment in the US.

Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake signs autographs on his way to the SAG Awards ceremony held Saturday, Jan. 23. Later that evening, Timberlake handed out the best actor in a comedy series award to Alec Baldwin. In 2010, Timberlake will provide the voice of “Artie” in Shrek Forever After and will be featured in David Fincher's The Social Network.

Below, best actor in a television drama Michael C. Hall and best supporting actor in a motion picture Christoph Waltz pose for photographers. Hall, who has undergone cancer treatment (hence the skullcap), won his Actor for Dexter; Waltz won his for Quentin Tarantino's World War II saga Inglourious Basterds. Waltz won a second award later that evening, as one of the cast members of Tarantino's drama, the winner of the Actor for best ensemble.

Penélope Cruz, Rob Marshall, Jane Krakowski

Penélope Cruz, Rob Marshall and Jane Krakowski pose for the cameras at the 2010 SAG Awards ceremony, held this past Saturday, Jan. 23, in Los Angeles. Cruz was a best supporting actress nominee for the musical Nine, which was directed by Marshall. The film was also up for the best ensemble award, but failed to win in either category. Touted as one of the most anticipated films of 2009, Nine was generally panned by critics and failed to find many patrons at the box office.

Jane Lynch (below) won an Actor statuette for being part of the Glee ensemble, voted the best cast in a television comedy series. Fellow players include Matthew Morrison, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Heather Morris, and Mark Salling. Curiously, none of Glee's cast members was nominated in the individual categories.

Holly Hunter

Best actress nominee in a drama series Holly Hunter (Saving Grace) arrives at the 2010 SAG Awards ceremony, which took place last Saturday, Jan. 23, in Los Angeles. Hunter lost the Actor trophy to Julianna Margulies, who had also won a Golden Globe the weekend before. Hunter has been nominated for four Academy Awards; she won once for Jane Campion's The Piano (1993). Hunter's co-star in that movie and fellow Oscar winner, Anna Paquin, was also present at the 2010 SAG Awards. Paquin was one of the nominees for best cast in a drama series (True Blood).

Diane Kruger (below), who plays an actress and anti-Nazi spy in Inglourious Basterds, won an Actor statuette for being a member of the Inglourious Basterds cast. Kruger had also been up for a best supporting actress SAG Award, but she lost to Mo'Nique in Precious.
